Tonight at 9 pm Eastern, MTV will host the 2015 Video Music Awards. The VMAs, might not have the prestige of the Oscars or the record industry clout of the Grammys — in fact, the awards don't really matter all that much at all — but they do have an advantage in pure spectacle.

Miley Cyrus hosts this year and will be accompanied by performances from Demi Lovato, The Weekend, and Pharrell. Taylor Swift will also be premiering her video for "Wildest Dreams" during the pre-show. Aside from the performances, people will be looking to see if Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj have worked out their differences as well as the perpetual threat of Kanye West hijacking the event.

Please join Vox's live blog covering the event. The live-blogging begins at 8 pm Eastern and will continue until the program ends.
